Yummy411: Go Mommy Go!- Get Your Feet Summer Ready

This post is for Muthasfynest!

Anyone else amazed at how fast Spring has gone by and Summer is right upon us? Many of us, especially our mommies on the go, haven't been able to make time to get that much needed 'out of winter' pedicure. You may have cheated and faked a pedi for your peep toes, but with the weather heating up to 90 degrees in my area, you have to go full on flip flops and sandals, exposed heels and all!

Let's try a quick fix until you get to the nail salon!

1. The day before you plan to wear your sandals, head to CVS or your local drugstore and invest in a PedEgg ($10, After checking out that link, are you a believer? Be sure to use on dry feet!

2. Clean your tootsies (scrub and clean around and under nails thoroughly). Pull out your old faithful Vaseline/petroleum jelly and moisturize feet. Sleep with socks on. Have sock phobia? Use a minty scrub and rub with an essential oil.

3. Next day, give your toe nails a good filing and polish over those babies with NYC Nail Glossies in #215 ($1.99), Linen, a sheer off white, cream color with minute silver shimmer that gives the cream a nice shine. Use 1-3 coats for your desired opaqueness (I use 3). Using a nude, subtle white color gives a fresh appearance without drawing too much attention to the feet if polish chips.

4. Schedule a pedi to start the summer off right!

Go Mommy Go!

The Fitness Diva said...

I definitely need one of those right now! Funny how you totally exposed really touching up the "peep toes". I didn't think anybody else was on to that!

I use the PedEgg but find that the refills are not as sharp as the originals, sadly.

I really need to give myself a pedicure; my feet are a mess. Sadly, I've never had a salon pedi or mani.

yummy411 said...

@ (g): teal glitter.. bling bling toes huh?

@ the fitness diva: yeh you gotta touch up the big toe; no one else will see the others! LOL! yeh i'm dying to get a pedegg!

@ mandypandy: what are you waiting for? you totally need to indulge one day on a professional pedi. nothing wrong with diy.. but sometimes you just need to relax!

The ped egg is LIKE DAT! Seriously, I have been trying everything on my feet and I get pedicures regularly. Ladies it was worth the $9.99.
